Let this be a lesson for you young basketball players out there — there is a reason coaches say to follow your shot.
Reasons like this, when Derrick Rose follows his own shot for the amazing put-back slam. Another stunning play from the MVP. Don’t try this at home, he’s a trained professional.
It wasn’t enough, the Hawks still got the win in this one to even the series, but this play by Rose was the highlight of the game.
